Collective sigh

So, the 2008 Edinburgh micro-festival is over, and echoes of megaphones, filmreels, synthesizers and lasers are beginning to fade to dreamlike memories. We'll be collating a gallery of the greatest photos very soon - though it'll be hard to choose from the endless array of unforgettable scenes, from Emily and Rachel's conjoined appearance as the Twins to Alice Saint's embodiment of all that is glamour, from Tom's glitter-soaked performance in his Edith Massey dress to the red-carpet champagne premiere of Garry's Karaoke - not forgetting the brain-melding immersion of 7VWWVW's smoke, lights and analogue synthesis.

We extend all our gratitude to all who came and made it the magic that it was - the puppeteers, violinists, filmmakers, performers, artists, rockstars, ravers, friends, collaborators, freeloaders and weirdos. Until next time...

Karaoke (2008)

Amongst the constellation of delights that make up our rapidly impending Edinburgh show, we're honoured to be hosting the premiere of Karaoke, the new film by underground London film-maker Garry Sykes. It's also the film debut of Alice Saint, starlet in the making and the newest addition to the WTCD,TD collective.

More about the film and showing:

KARAOKE (Garry Sykes, UK, 2008, 35 mins)

This is a world premiere, these karaoke songs. Starring Tom Moore and introducing beautiful new starlet Alice Saint to the eyes of the world, these songs they sing tell who they are, were, and who they're becoming. Karaoke is a no wave musical, a video portrait and above all a romantic picture. Karaoke is compromise, obsession and addiction. Karaoke is change, determined spirit and love.

Showing in the Forest's church hall at 8pm on Saturday 23rd August 2008, undoubtedly preceded by glitzy champagne reception and red carpet greetings...
